St. Eustace Double Feast of Saint Eustacius and Companion Martyrs
RED Vestments

Also commemoration of Vigil of St. Matthew

EMBER SATURDAY, Day of Fast and Partial Abstinence

Missa "Sapiéntiam"

        Saint Eustachius, or Eustace, was an officer of the Roman army under Emperor Trajan. He was burned at the stake for the Faith, with his wife and children, during the reign of Emperor Hadrian. We pray to him to preserve us from fire, eternal or temporal. In art he is depicted with a stag and hunting equipment.

        Today is also the Vigil of Saint Matthew. If this is celebrated the vestments are violet. In accordance with her usual custom the Church appoints a vigil to the feast of the holy apostle, Matthew. It has been kept in the Church from ancient time and is mentioned in the Martyrology of St. Jerome.

      Resources: We are grateful to Friends of Our Lady of Fatima for providing the Propers for the faithful. Sources: Saint Andrew Daily Missal and the Marian Missal , 1945

EPISTLE:   Wisdom 5: 16-20
Léctio libri Sapiéntiæ. Justi autem in perpétuum vivent, et apud Dóminum est merces eórum, et cogitátio illórum apud Altíssimum. Ideo accípient regrnm decóris, et diadéma speciéi de manu Dómini: quóniam déxtera mea teget eos, et bráchio sancto suo deféndet illos. Accípiet armatúram zelus illíus, et armábit creatúram ad ultiónem inimicórum. Induet pro thoráce justítiam, et accípiet pro gálea judícium certum. Sumet scutum inexpugnábile, æquitátem.
Deo Gratias.
Lesson from the Book of Wisdom. But the just shall live foevermore, and their reward is with the Lord, and the care of them with the Most High. Therefore shall they receive a kingdom of glory, and a crown of beauty at the hand of the Lord: for with His right hand He will cover them, and with His holy arm He will defend them; and His zeal will take armor, and He will arm the creature for the revenge of His enemies. He will put on justice as a breastplate, and will take true judgment instead of a helmet; He will take equity for an invincible shield.
Thanks be to God.

In illo témpore: Descéndens Jesus de monte stetit in loco campéstri, et turba discipulórum ejus, et multitúdo copiósa plebis ab omni Judæa, et Jerúsalem, et marítima, et Tyri, et Sidónis, qui vénerant, ut audírent eum, et sanaréntur a languóribus suis. Et qui vexabántur a spirítibus immúndis, curabántur. Et omnis turba quærébat eum tángere: quia virtus de illo exíbat, et sanábat omnes. Et ipse elevátis óculis in discípulos suos, dicébat: "Beáti páuperes: quia vestrum est regnum Dei. Beáti, qui nunc esúritis, quia saturabímini. Beáti, qui nunc fletis: quia ridébitis. Beáti éritis, cum vos óderint hómines, et cum separáverint vos, et exprobráverint, et ejécerint nomen vestrum tamquam malum, propter Fílium hóminis. Gaudéte in illa die, et exsultáte: ecce enim merces vestra multa est in Coelo."
Laus tibi Christe.

The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Luke. R. Glory to Thee, O Lord

At that time, Jesus coming down from the mountain stood in a plain place, and the company of His disciples, and a very great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the seacoast both of Tyre and Sidon, who were come to hear Him, and to be healed of their diseases. And they that were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. And all the multitude sought to touch Him, for virtue went out from Him, and healed all. And He, lifting up his eyes on His disciples, said, "Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now, for you shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now, for you shall laugh. Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake: be glad in that day and rejoice, for behold, your reward is great in Heaven."
Praise be to Christ

Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutare, nos Tibi simper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem majestatem Tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates, Coeli, Coelorumque Virtutes, ac beata Seraphim socia exultatione concelebrant.

It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God: through Christ our Lord. Through Whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the Heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with them we entreat Thee, that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted, while we say in lowly praise:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...

THE LAST GOSPEL

For the Vigil of St. Matthew, all stand as the Priest moves to the far Gospel side where he reads the Gospel of Luke 5: 27-32 in lieu of the normal Last Gospel of John 1: 1-14 on this day only.
V. Dominus vobiscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
V. Initium sancti Evangelii secundum Lucam.
R. Gloria tibi, Domine

In illo témpore: Vidit Jesus publicánum nómine Levi, sedéntem ad telónium, et ait flli: "Séquere Me." Et relíctis ómnibus, surgens secútus est eum. Et fecit ei convivium magnum Levi in domo sua: et erat turba multa publicanórum, et aliórum, qui cum illis erant discumbéntes. Et murmurábant Pharisaei et Scribae eórum, dicéntes ad discípulos ejus: Quare cum publicánis et peccatóribus manducátis et bíbitis? Et respóndens Jesus, dixit ad illos: "Non egent qui sani sunt médico, sed qui male habent. Non veni vocáre justos, sed peccatóres ad poeniténtiam."

R. Deo gratias.

V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
V. The beginning of the holy Gospel according to Luke. R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

At that time, Jesus saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom; and He said to him, "Follow Me." And, leaving all things, he rose up, and followed Him. And Levi made Him a great feast in his own house; and there was a great company of publicans, and of others, that were at table with them. But the pharisees and scribes murmured, saying to His disciples, Why do you eat and drink with publicans and sinners? And Jesus answering, said to them, "They that are whole need not the physician: but they that are sick. I came not to call the just, but sinners, to penance."

R. Thanks be to God.
